in canada to an american mother, ted cruz became an instant u.s. citizen, but under canadian law he also became a citizen of that country the moment he was born. unless the texas republican senator formally renounces that citizenship, he will remain a citizen of both countries, legal experts say." ted cruz released his canadian birth certificate in response to inquiries from the "dallas morning news." today ted cruz's senate press secretary released this oddly worded statement.
